This app lets you create art with a distinct cartoon style, thanks to its unique drawing tools that include a Doodle Pen, a Gradient Doodle Pen, and a Puff Pen.
You will also find an ordinary pen and eraser as well as Lighten and Darken, which you can use to add more life to your drawings.

ADJUST WHILE DRAWING
All the buttons and control knobs in the toolbar can be changed and adjusted while you draw!
APPLE PENCIL SUPPORT
The strokes change characteristics depending on how you use the Pencil (pressure, tilt).
While using Apple Pencil, you can assign a different tool, such as Eraser, to the finger, which can be really useful!
Tap twice on a tool, and select the option “Use as 2nd Tool”.
FULL SCREEN DRAWING
You can swipe the toolbar toward the screen edge to remove it.
Swipe in from outside the edge to get it back.
You can also swipe the toolbar over to the other side, to get it out of the way.
SEAMLESS PATTERN EDITING MODE
The unique Seamless Pattern Editing mode lets you display the picture as tiles next to each other.
You’re free to paint anywhere on these tiles, so you can easily create seamless patterns for use as website or desktop backgrounds, in print, or for textures in 3d modelling.
Toggle this feature on/off in “Work in Progress”, in the menu that comes up when you tap the “…” button.
ZOOMING, PANNING, ROTATING
You can pinch to zoom, drag with two fingers to pan, or rotate the picture.
To reset the zoom/pan/rotation, tap once with two fingers, and again to go back.
Everything from selecting a layer to adding new ones can be done in the Layer Control.
To open the Layer Control, tap the button that has a mountain/house/flower (symbolizing the selected layer).
Flower = topmost layer
House = any layer in-between
Mountain = bottom-most layer
Please note that the number of layers is restricted to two unless you upgrade to Pro.
If you upgrade to Pro, you will also be able to change the color of the paper beneath the layer(s), by pressing “Paper Color”.
There’s a scrollable palette, where you can pick colors, as well as store new ones.
To edit any palette section, long-press on a color and start moving it (hold longer, and a menu appears).
Adjacent to the palette are three control knobs that adjust the hue, saturation, and brightness of the current color.
Note that you can adjust the color while you draw!
The Current Color button is the large colored rectangle next to the knobs.
Tapping this button brings up a menu with some options, including “Eyedropper” (Pro feature).

You are allowed to have multiple instances of the same tool, which can be very useful since they have different settings and color. For example, you could assign your favorite drawing tool to three buttons, one with a small size suitable for sketching, one suitable for normal drawing, and one large-sized with a dark color and low force value suitable for drawing shadows.

Ratings and Reviews
This is a must have app...just like a review said even if you are not a great artist. Maybe coloring is your thing this is great for that also. The biggest deal for me is when a developer keeps his apps updated and keeps making them even better. I am so happy with this developer art apps that I have every single one. You will not regret getting all of the apps either. I color and draw in them. To the developer keep up the great work.....
I love this app!
I have found no other app that has the beautiful colors found in this one. I wish I could take all my notes with the multicolor pen!
I would make lists, write ideas, schedules, etc. I need a daydream notes app!
I love this app I’m not a artist but this app helped me out with what I’ve need to do
